Team Response to Airway Crises (T.R.A.C)

Critical care nurses and doctors are often called upon to manage the complex airway of an acutely unwell patient.  Along with the challenges of forming a cohesive team, there may be differences in the clinical approach and management between specialties which may add an extra layer of difficulty to an already challenging situation.
TRAC aims to provide participants from critical care specialties with a shared template for the management of the unanticipated difficult airway.
Along with practicing the technical skills necessary for advanced airway management, TRAC will enable participants to explore and practice the teamwork skills and behaviours vital for effective team performance.

Course at a Glance

TRAC uses a blended learning approach.  It incorporates interactive videos, discussions, clinical workshops and simulation to explore the topics of rapid sequence induction (RSI) and non-surgical and surgical techniques to safely manage the unanticipated difficult airway.

Who can attend?
The course is designed for the following groups:

•    Critical care medical consultants,
•    Anaesthetic medical trainees, and
•    Emergency/ICU medical trainees (we request that you must have completed at least one anaesthetic rotation)

•    ICU/Emergency/Anaesthetic Nurses, and
•    Endoscopy/Diagnostic Imaging nurses (who regularly perform the role of airway assistant)

Course cost: $179.00 per person (Medical and Nursing). Note this course cost is heavily subsidised for Monash Health Staff. 

Course Duration 
TRAC commences at 8am sharp and concludes at 4.45pm. To allow the course to run to time, registrants are asked to arrive 15 minutes prior to the course start time.
